The Mid-County Fire Protection District successfully located two woman who had become lost in the woods after kayaking on the Niangua River, according to a press release from Fire Chief Scott Frandsen. 

At approximately 10:19 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, units were dispatched to a report of two females lost in the woods off Goldie Bend Road in Camden County. 

The individuals had been kayaking the Niangua River when it became dark and no longer navigable, so they exited the river and attempted to walk to a road for a ride when they became disorientated, according to the release. 

After arriving to the scene, MCFPD units met with a friend who had cell phone contact with the lost women. MCFPD were able to pinpoint their location using a cell phone map and locate the individuals within approximately 15 minutes. 

Neither person had suffered any injuries nor required any medical attention. Both women and their dog were transported back to their vehicle with no further action taken. All units cleared the scene by roughly 11:02 p.m. 

MCFPD was assisted on scene by the Camden County Sheriff's Office.
